This morning I had a moment that made me go “hmmmmmm??”. My neighbor across the street recently had shoulder surgery and asked if I could drive her oldest daughter to middle school each morning which I had no problem with, so for the past two weeks I have been driving her to school and having little bits of chit chat. Today she hops in the car and has a book in her hand that immediately caught my attention…. yes the one on the right.
And so I start talking about how I have heard this is a really good book and that I think it’s a really neat idea to mash up English literature with Zombies. Then I say “So what did you think of Pride and Prejudice?” And she says “There was a JUST Pride and Prejudice without zombies??” And I am thinking WHAT????
Yes, I am happy that she is reading! She’s a straight A student in all advanced classes….. I just am amazed that she didn’t know that Pride and Prejudice existed. My apologies Jane Austen. How could you truly appreciate Pride and Prejudice and Zombies without first reading Pride and Prejudice. Or at least watch the movie!
On another note…. I am glad she had the book because when she is finished she said she’ll let me borrow it. Chances are I will appreciate it a bit more. Thoughts?
